Anyone recognize this one? I don't even know where to begin to look as it's not familiar to me at all. These are the only two photos I have and the quality and lighting wasn't very good. I hope someone will recognize it and be able to give me an ID.

Area photo was taken: Point Loma, San Diego
Date of photo: January 9, 2015

Dave, thank you so much ... It sure does look like Eriodictyon ... I'm thinking it more resembles E. crassfolium with the grayish-green soft, felt-like leaves. What do you think?

Not completely sure Lin.

But without flowers, seems like on the right track.

A hui hou, & happy new year.

Aloha, Dave
